No movement ahead of The Open

There was no movement in the automatic qualification spots on Team Europe at close of the fifth Rolex Series event of the season, the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open.

However, there were a couple of players who made their way closer to the bubble and showing good form in time for the 147th Open Championship. 

England’s Eddie Pepperell was the leading European at the Scottish Open on 16 under par, which was only bettered by the winner Brandon Stone – who shot an incredible ten under par on the final day. 

Thomas Pieters, arguably Europe’s stand out player at The 2016 Ryder Cup, is also starting to put a run of form together and will certainly be on the mind of Thomas Bjorn. 

The Belgian shot four rounds in the 60s to finish in a tie for sixth place and, if this form continues, it will be hard to ignore the three time European Tour winner for a wildcard pick.

Other strong performances at Gullane Golf Club came from Tyrrell Hatton and Justin Rose, who both finished in a tie for ninth on 13 under par. 

For the latter, Rose, that is his 17th top ten in his last 22 tournaments, which includes four wins as well.

As things stand, Tyrrell Hatton, Justin Rose, Tommy Fleetwood and Francesco Molinari will qualify on the European Points list, 
with Jon Rahm, Alex Noren, Rory McIlroy and Paul Casey making the team on the World Points list.

After a trio of consecutive Rolex Series events, the Tour now heads into the third Major of the year at Carnoustie – The Open. 

With more World Ranking points on offer, this provides a great opportunity for those currently in the automatic spots on the World Points list to all but secure their place. 

It also affords the opportunity for those on the bubble to prove they can perform on one of golf’s biggest stages. 

One thing is for sure, Thomas Bjorn will be keeping a close eye on proceedings at Carnoustie.

Ryder Cup HOW IT WORKS

The Ryder Cup is played in even-numbered years between 12-member teams from the United States and Europe. It consists of five match-play sessions played over three days.

Team Selection

The European Team will comprise the first 4 players from the European Points List, followed by the leading 4 players from the World Points List and completed by 4 wild cards. The US Team will be made up from the top 8 in the points rankings with 4 captain's picks

Ryder Cup Format

Each of the first two days includes one four-match session of four-ball and one four-match session of foursomes. The final day is reserved for 12 singles matches.

Ryder Cup Scoring

Each match is worth one point, with matches ending in a draw worth ½ point to each side. The first team to reach 14 ½ points wins the Ryder Cup. If the matches end in a 14-14 draw, the team holding the Ryder Cup retains it.
